I went through the Interview process for thethis past semester. My complete lack of interview experience destroyed me (ironic thing is, I've been working in "the industry", I guess you would say, for a hedge fund, for almost a year and a half-I got the job after just one interview though, my first one ever, which seems to have come back and bite me in the ass). I didn't know how to sell myself, was nervous, etc. I would nail all the tech questions, that wasn't the problem. But I guess the sight of a nervous wreck of an analyst to be didn't get the interviewers too hyped up about me. However, I went through dozens of the interviews during the process, with the last one resulting in it being down to me and one other guy for the position (he got it).
I guess me question is about the level of difficulty when it comes to landing the gig. Is it more difficult to get the full-time than the summer? Easier? I've heard it both ways. There are supposedly more spots, more companies across all types of industries are interviewing (so not everyone and their brother is dying to get that i-banking job).
